Heavy Clashes Erupt between Yemeni Army, Pro-Hadi Terrorists
Heavy fighting erupted between the Yemeni army troops and loyalists to fugitive president Mansour Hadi in various areas in the governorate of Aden on Thursday.
According to the Arabic-language al-Mayadeen television, clashes are ongoing between the Yemeni army and Pro-Hadi militants in various neighborhoods in the city of Khormaksar in Aden.
On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia declared that it stopped bombing Yemen after 27 days of airstrikes that have resulted in the death of around 2,900 people, mostly women and children.
Saudi Arabia launched its airstrikes on March 26 and kept them in place for 27 days in a move to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh. The Saudi-led aggression claimed the lives of around 2,900 Yemenis, including hundreds of women and children. The attacks have also left thousands of people injured.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it was bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes were flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
Riyadh officials said the Saudi-led coalition operations in Yemen are now entering a political phase, but the latest reports from different Yemeni cities said that the Saudi airstrikes are still underway.
